20 Chunky Sneaker Styles

From Streetwear Shoe Collaborations to Nostalgic Neon Footwear

— February 6, 2018 — Fashion
These chunky sneaker styles range from collaborative streetwear offerings to nostalgic footwear revivals. Paying homage to 90s, these products are not only aesthetically bold but also ensure comfort for wearers.

When looking at luxe product offerings, standouts include the COMME des GARÇONS x Nike 'ACG Mowabb' sneaker which debuted at the label's recent Paris Fashion Week show. The chunky sneaker is an all-white model with a neoprene upper and subtle CDG logo detailing in black. The shoe follows in the footsteps of other upscale offerings like Vetements' collaborative 'Instapump Fury' range with Reebok and Balenciaga's now iconic 'Triple S' style.

Other chunky sneakers to note include the widely anticipated 'Brandblack Aura II' shoe which combines multiple inspirations to create a hybrid model. The bright neon sneaker rejects minimalist style sensibilities and makes a loud statement when worn.
